Put the sts on only 2 needles, then work a few rounds using a 3rd one to knit with. After you've increased once or twice, it should be long enough with enough sts that you can add another needle.

it helps if you use smaller needles for the first round or two. As others have said, try dividing the stitches in HALF - putting them on TWO needles and use a third to knit a round or so - THEN divide up onto your three needles.
